Citroen C4 Picasso – Good technology at a price

Citroen owners have always been proud of the technology in their cars.  If you go back to the old DSs, an owner would always seem to take you of a tour of the car pointing out the button brake pedal, the hydraulic suspension, the unique dials.

The new Citroen Picasso carries on this tradition with a wide range of equipment, for a price.

It is an unusual type of car.

It is the smaller version of the Grand Picasso which is a stylish people mover. The Picasso is only a five seater, it is taller than a station wagon but does not have the looks of an SUV.

Can this small car find a niche in the market?

To help us understand where the vehicle fits in I have on the line Alan Zurvas from gay car boys . com

  • Very interesting dash. The dials are in the centre console, they are on a 12 inch screen.  Means that a dial can be replaced with
